    Just click on "REFRESH"

    On Firefox, like a circular arrow icon

    or just jump back and forward from HOT to NEW

    There are static web pages and dynamic web pages.

    Dynamic web pages (like say the BBC news pages and some shopping web sites) are updated automatically by the "system" and so change on a minute by minute basis.

    A static web page (hand crafted by an individual) does not need to indictate when it was last updated so this may be difficult information to find out.

    If you have access to the host computer where it is stored so can "log on" to the site you can find out when it was last updated, but it is very difficult to find out what that update was.

    Not unless they specifically put in a "last updated on..." on the page, which I'm guessing they don't, otherwise you wouldn't be asking the question in the first place.

    Thanks guys, just thought maybe it would say in 'properties' or something - I am not good with these things!

    I wasn't talking about HUKD and didn't mention it, have you recently become addicted to this site or is it a long term thing? :-D

    Copy and paste this javascript on url address bar and press enter. You might have to refresh the page and try again. Works for html pages only.

    " [COLOR="Red"]javascript:alert(document.lastModified)[/COLOR] "

    It doesn't work for me on Firefox but worked OK on IE.

    (With firefox I was getting the current date and time)

    Thanks - do you mean I should go to the web page in question and then enter the above into the address box (so the other address disappears) and click enter? I am getting the current date and time when I do that on IE :thinking:
